Scheduling maintenance work is one of the easiest ways for asset-intensive organizations to minimize maintenance spending, increase their efficiency and reduce downtime. Planned work is always more cost-effective than reactive, and even a marginal increase in planned work can produce massive savings and increases in efficiency.
VIZIYA developed our WorkAlign® Scheduler solution over 10 years as part of a collaborative partnership with Barrick Gold. Since then, VIZIYA WorkAlign® Scheduler has been tried, tested and improved based on the functional needs and requirements of 55,000 users from multiple industries across the globe.

Several companies have specifically benefited from VIZIYA’sWorkAlign® Scheduler.
Wesfarmers Curragh, one of Australia’s largest independent coal mines, needed a scheduling solution that would enhance their existing CMMS, could evolve in line with their Oracle ERP system and most importantly a solution that could meet the needs of different parts of its business, including enhanced capacity planning to improve utilization of labor resources, and advanced features to ensure the right work could be matched with the right resources.
In the first week of production, Wesfarmers Curragh was able to identify a backlog of 5,000 work orders that had been completed by never closed. In addition, they were able to identify several work orders that had not been completed and required work, promoting immediate corrective action by the maintenance team. VIZIYA WorkAlign® Scheduler also allowed Wesfarmers Curragh to reduce their contractor expenses, improve utilization and enhance their ability to control their work management process.
